How does it work?
You will be notified by your COLL101 instructor when to take the surveys as PSC will launch the Mapworks Transition Survey beginning the fourth week and then the Follow-up Survey beginning the tenth week of the fall semester. You will receive an email invitation from Mapworks to participate in the survey and how to log in. The survey only takes 15-20 minutes to complete.
Mapworks uses a combination of the following academic success components:
- Admissions data (high school GPA, ACT/SAT scores)
- Institutional data (graduation rates, average GPA)
- Individualized student surveys taken at pivotal times throughout the year which focuses on:
- Learning Skills
- Personal Connections
- Social Integration
- Making Healthy Choices
- Time Management
- Academic Abilities
Once the survey is completed, a personalized on-line or printable (PDF) report is available. This report will help you:
- understand your personal strengths
- identify areas where you might be struggling
- receive personalized support through faculty/staff advising
- connect with pertinent resources on campus
- compare your results to peers
